Research in Scientific Computing in Undergraduate Education

09. Research topics for Juniors & Seniors

CAPSTONE RESEARCH PROJECTS

The major expectation for our upper level students is the carrying out of a substantial research project to the point where the results and methods can be presented at a professional meeting (SIAM, MAA, AMS, MathFest) and written up for publication in a refereed research journal. Not all students will reach this level of attainment – yet all will aim for it. Deep and extensive faculty mentoring, and sustained group support, will see most students reach this level in their research.

Students will begin a substantial year-long research project in the second semester of their junior year through the first semester of their senior year. In the second semester of their senior year they will write up and present their work.

Examples of research in progress, recently completed research, and new research topics, include the following:
